Soon foreign universities will set up campuses in India, UGC forms panel to set rules

In order to encourage the best foreign higher education institutions to set up their campuses in India, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has set up a committee of five members. The committee prepared rules and regulations for these foreign institutes. The committee was established on April 11, according to reports, and will announce its report by the end of the month.

Apparently, the first institutes to appear will be in the fields of science and technology, however, more details will soon be available when the UGC officially announces the report and the rules suggested by the committee. These measures are part of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. Under the NEP, the government had suggested the establishment of Indian Colleges Abroad and Foreign Colleges in India.

“A legislative framework facilitating such entry will be put in place, and such universities will be given special dispensation in regulatory, governance and content standards on par with other self-governing institutions in India,” the official said. CIP.

These suggestions are going to come true soon as UGC is about to announce its policy regulations allowing foreign colleges to establish in India soon. This should enable Indian students not only to study here but also in India-based institutes to establish deeper collaborations in terms of joint courses, student exchanges, research, etc.

Last year, a survey by the National Institute of Educational Planning and Administration (NIEPA) revealed that no less than eight foreign universities were interested in setting up their campuses in India. Without revealing any names, the centrally funded body had informed that these institutes were among the top 50 in the Times Higher Education ranking.

Indian colleges have also been urged to systematically create their own brands and organize international diaspora outreach programs, attract foreign students and build good reputations.

The strategy also includes the introduction of credit transfer within the framework of the match. Under this program, students enrolled in institutes of higher learning (HEIs) in India will complete part of their studies at an international partner institute.
